Weekend Escape / 5


In The Historical Hotel Building

It was a little bad chance to be there at that time. Because there was a crowded group in the hotel for annual meeting… So why we didn’t find room in this historical one.

If you visited the links about Hotel Montania, you have aalready known all its history. You will find the old railway in the hotel

corridor…

We went to the sea side of the hotel… During spring and summer days should be amazing… But I am afraid should be crowded again… Because this hotel is very popular in this area, citizens escape to here… from Bursa, Istanbul, Kocaeli, Eskişehir, Yalova,….

The View From The Hotel Room

Actually we wished to stay in the historical building that was at the sea side. But there wasn’t any room, all of them were full.

So we stayed in the new building… I took (as always) some photographs from the room window,

Weekend Escape / 1


“We are sailing…. we are sailing….” Rod Stewart

I am sailing
I am sailing
Home again
‘Cross the sea
I am sailing,
Stormy waters
To be near you,
To be free

I am flying,
I am flying
Like a bird
‘Cross the sky
I am flying,
Passing high clouds
To be with you,
To be free

Can you hear me, can you hear me
Through the dark night, far away
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say

Can you hear me, can you hear me
Through the dark night far away
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say

We are sailing, we are sailing
Home again
‘Cross the sea
We are sailing
Stormy waters
To be near you,
To be free

Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
Oh Lord

Yes, last Saturday we were sailing to the other side of the bay by ferryboat. It will be better to see in the map where we went,

Mudanya bay

We crossed the Bay Izmit,  then we went by minibus to the other bay, “Bay Mudanya”. It was early in the morning… The sky doesn’t seem in sunny dress :) But seagulls as always smiled and  followed us in the calmness of the sea…

They are building a bridge (that will be the one of the longest suspension bridges in the world by the length of central span.) You can see the towers now…
